International Water Services Flushability Group - draft standards available for comment
The International Water Services Flushability Group has launched their website featuring updates on the collaborative international effort to develop and enforce standards for flushable products. The International Water Services Flushability Group (IWSFG) is a group of water associations, utilities, and professionals seeking to provide clear guidance on what should and should not be flushed down the toilet to protect customers, wastewater systems, their workers, and the environment.
The Group has published draft standards to their website, and are currently seeking comments. CWWA encourages members to review and comment on the standards. Please note anyone wishing to submit comments must request the comment template. The Standards and more information on how to submit are available at:
CWWA also encourages utility members to join the group as Non-Voting Water Services Associates (state/regional water service associations and individual water services or utilities)
